I've got an account on dreamhost, from which I host a couple of very low 
traffic sites built on Drupal.  They seem like good folks, and provide 
full shell access.  For me, that was the differentiator; most places 
don't allow shell access on their shared hosting machines.

The downside to dreamhost is they seem to overload their shared hosting 
machines.  Performance can be sucky.  Un clear how much of that is host 
overloading and how much of that is simply that Drupal is a pig :-)
